Haiti ARISE representatives coming to Nelson this Sunday.

Haiti effort continues to make a difference

Kootenay Christian Fellowship invites anyone and everyone to join them in welcoming Marc and Lisa Honorat from Haiti ARISE.

On Sunday, Kootenay Christian Fellowship invites anyone and everyone to join them in welcoming Marc and Lisa Honorat from Haiti ARISE.

Come and hear firsthand the progress being made and the challenges that still exist in Haiti since the devastating earthquake in 2010.

There will be two services held in the Central School gym (corner of Ward and Mill Street), one at 10:30 a.m. and another at 6:30 p.m. Join them at whatever time best suits your schedule.

During the Sunday evening session, pictures will be shown of the progress made on the technical school, the first building of the children’s village, the eachONE buildONE housing project and the primary school.

This event is free, but a special offering will be taken to help with work in Haiti.

Haiti ARISE was originally founded from a vision of planting a bible college in Haiti. This vision soon grew to encompass much more, such as a technical institute, a children’s village, a primary school and an agricultural program.

In their time here, Marc and Lisa will be sharing on the progress as well as the future goals, and how we can help.

For more information call Kootenay Christian Fellowship at 1-888-761-3301.
